MLA says food hawkers zone idea in Mandavelipakkam dropped

The idea to create a Food Hawkers Zone on a street between Dhyana Ashram and St Anthony’s Girls School in Mandavelipakkam has been dropped, Mylapore MLA Dha Velu says.

He says residents of the area do not want such a project saying that will draw crowds and affect the quietness of the zone.

Velu says he says an alternate idea is to have push-cart vegetable and grocery hawkers stationed here at business hours and asked to clear the place after that.

He says residents are warm to this idea following the interaction he has had this week.

The MLA says that some people were hanging around this street and complaints of undesirable acts had come to his notice and hence, there was a need to address the issue, more so because a large community of young girls attend the school and use the space around.

Velu says he intends to ask GCC to lay a pavement and get a police patrol booth set up.
